I have to agree. In August I rode my KLR650 fully loaded with camping gear etc about 1200 miles around Colorado. It did great, but was a heavy pig. I picked up my new to me WR250r in Sacramento, and rode it home. It already had the IMS 4.7 gallon tank. I put on Wolfman racks and drybag panniers, plus a dry bag on top. I road Highway, slickrock(with the gear off), La Sal, Engineer, and Imogene passes. It was a great way to get used to a new bike. The WR250r, geared up with a 4.7 gallon tank felt way lighter than my KLR650 did without gear.
